I like this game, Grondy.
Perhaps we should start out easy then move on as we become more proficient. Perhaps option 1 would be a good place to start.

It all depends how good everyone's Quenya is. I personally would prefer option 3, but I don't know what oother people think.

red = carnë

I think I agree with Peredhil, option 3 will make it more chalenging and will "force" us to study some Quenya grammar too, not just the words. But option 1 and 2 may be ok in the beginning. If we haven't started reading Fauskangers lessons yet, getting to know some words would be an ok start.

Hidden:Tumna (Had to think about that one)

How about Hyar in English (kind of a trick question, but easy if you know it or can find the answer)

Hyar as a word on its own actually means plough (plow), but, when used in conjunction with other elements, can also mean cleave. (Yes, I did look that up.)
It was a trick question because everyone has heard the word for south (hyarmen) and I thought there might be some confusion.
Does Rasse mean horn? Caradhras (the mountain) being Redhorn in Sindarin.
How about knife into Quenya
